  • NFL Week 5 Injury Report for IDP

    Welcome to the NFL Week 5 Injury Report for IDP.  A quarter of the way through the season, how are you feeling?

    For those who are new, let's cover whats cover what each tag means, (the salty vets can skip right to the pictures for the latest team updates.)

    For players who are out for an extended period of time, teams will place those players on IR (Injured Reserve). Sometimes, players on IR will be out for the entire season, sometimes they are only out for a minimum of three weeks.

    If your league has an IR slot, make sure you utilize it for players who will be returning for redraft leagues and drop players who will be out for the season. In a dynasty, that is less important. For dynasty leagues, if you absolutely need the roster spot, so try to trade a player to make space.

    Player tags:

    "OUT"  means the player will not be playing this week, and in some leagues can be placed on the IR.

    "DOUBTFUL" indicates the player is unlikely to play.

    "QUESTIONABLE" means that the player is hurt, but will most likely play.
